Gregar Typho was a human male and a captain of the Royal Naboo Security Forces during the Separatist Crisis and the Clone Wars. He served as Senator Padmé Amidala's head of security, ensuring her safety at all costs. Typho followed in the footsteps of his uncle, Quarsh Panaka, who was a Naboo Royal Security Forces captain during the Invasion of Naboo.
The Separatist CrisisEdit
During the Separatist Crisis, Captain Gregar Typho accompanied Senator Padmé Amidala on a diplomatic mission to the galactic capital Coruscant to vote against the upcoming Military Creation Act. A growing Separatist movement led by the charismatic former Jedi Count Dooku was challenging the ailing Galactic Republic. In response, loyalist elements led by Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine had introduced legislation to create a Grand Army of the Republic.
Due to Senator Amidala's high profile, the Senator and Captain Typho had traveled to Coruscant disguised as starfighter pilots. One of Senator Amidala's handmaidens, Cordé, had posed as Amidala and traveled on her diplomatic barge. This ruse enabled Amidala to escape an assassination attempt which claimed the life of her decoy and several members of her entourage. While Amidala was grieving over the fallen Cordé, Typho comforted her by assuring Amidala that the handmaiden had died in the line of duty.
Later, Typho went to Amidala's apartment on Coruscant to establish security there. The Senator's security detail was further augmented by two Jedi: the Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan Anakin Skywalker, who had a crush on Amidala. Following a second assassination attempt against Amidala by the Clawdite assassin Zam Wesell involving two poisonous kouhuns, Amidala returned to Naboo accompanied by Skywalker. Following these events, Typho remained on Coruscant to protect the Gungan Representative Jar Jar Binks, who took Amidala's place on the Senate. Binks sponsored the creation of the Grand Army, which foreshadowed the outbreak of the Clone Wars.
Blue Shadow Virus crisisEdit
Captain Typho and his men shot down and captured three B1 battle droids and a T-series tactical droid. In response, the reigning Queen Neeyutnee summoned Senator Amidala and Representative Jar Jar Binks back to Naboo to request for military assistance from the Galactic Republic. Captain Typho was present when Amidala, Binks, and C-3PO interrogated the captured tactical droid. Tricking the droid into thinking that it was on a Separatist warship, C-3PO managed to glean that there was a secret Separatist research installation on Naboo, producing a virus.
When the tactical droid realized that it was not on a Separatist warship, Typho raised a blaster at the droid and demanded that it cooperate. Before he could proceed, Binks accidentally destroyed the droid by knocking over some shelves while trying to catch a slug-beetle. Despite this setback, Amidala and Binks deduced that the droid came from Naboo's Eastern swamps due to the presence of mud on its chassis and the slug-beetle, which Binks recognized as originating from those swamps. While Amidala and company traveled to the Eastern Swamps to investigate, Captain Typho and Threepio remained behind to examine the other battle droids.
While examining a B1 battle droid's head, Typho and C-3PO discovered a hologram of a Separatist scientist named Doctor Nuvo Vindi and quickly relayed this information to Amidala. Meanwhile, Amidala and her companions discovered Dr Vindi's laboratory in the Eastern Swamps. Vindi was developing a deadly bioweapon called the Blue Shadow Virus for use by the Separatists.
Following a dangerous struggle, Amidala and her companions with the help of the Jedi Kenobi, Skywalker, his Padawan Ahsoka Tano and several Clone troopers managed to apprehend Vindi and stop him from releasing an airborne strain of the virus. Despite being exposed to the Blue Shadow Virus, Amidala and Binks survived due to Skywalker and Kenobi's efforts to obtain an antidote, the root of a reeksa plant from the planet Iego.
